Saltwell Park

This album was nearly titled "Saltwell Park in the Rain" since I got completely drenched when I ventured there on September 7th 2002. Fortunately the rain eventually stopped and the sun came out, and I was able to take most of these photos, including a couple experiementing with my camera's panoramic function.

Much of Saltwell Park is currently fenced off as a major restoration project is underway. Saltwell Towers is covered in scaffolding, the old Salte Welle has been vandalised and boarded up, and the Dene is completely overgrown with a dried up stream. The old children's play area has been relocated near the bowling green, and the cages for birds and small animals have all been removed.

Captions for photos should follow eventually!
